San Diego SAN Airport Overview

San Diego International Airport SAN - also known as 'Lindbergh Field' - serves the City of San Diego in southern California and surrounding areas.  It is the Nation’s busiest single runway airport, however, its reduced runway capacity also limits the number of international flights the Airport can accommodate. Conde Nast Traveler magazine has ranked San Diego Airport as the fifth in the Nation's top airports, and number 1 in the State.

SAN Airport is only a few miles to the center of San Diego, California, and is only 20 miles from the Mexican border. It is conveniently situated on North Harbor Drive, off Interstate Hwy I-5, offering connections to S.R. 163, I-8 and I-15. The area is known for its mild climate, plentiful beaches and world-class attractions like the San Diego Zoo and Sea World.

With a a yearly  estimate of 17.7 million travelers, San Diego Airport is served by  major airlines and regional jet services, offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe. Southwest is its dominant carrier.

2. Global Entry technology is now available at SAN.

Present & Future Airport Developments:
1. Groundbreaking on the new Rental Car Center on the north side of the Airport took place in October 2013 which will be served by a single shuttle service, saving time and energy.  Official opening is scheduled for January 2016.
The Economy lot was moved to the north side - enter via Washington Street at Pacific Highway (to make space for the rental car center.)
2. Construction started on the Cross-Border Terminal -
is to enable passengers to directly cross from Tijuana Airport in Mexico -  via new U.S. Customs & Border Protection station in Otay Mesa (south of  San Diego, U.S.A.) by taking the 160-foot pedestrian bridge - the  'Tijuana Cross Border Bridge' - allowing ticketed passengers to cross the bridge in either directions at a fee). The new Customs station at Otay Mesa is expected to be completed by late 2014  and will lower waiting times considerably and may boost cross-border tourism.
